Orphan Black joined the ranks of 2017 series debuting later in the year than we’ve come to expect, but the fifth and final season will no less bring some major changes to the show’s DNA. Case in point, our first teaser for the June premiere sees Sarah sticking up for her clone sisters, but will they all live through the final season?

We haven’t heard very much from Pearl Mackie’s Bill since learning that Doctor Who would say goodbye to Peter Capaldi at 2017's end, but surely our new companion is sticking around, right? Either way, Bill makes an impression in the latest Season 10 promo, heading into dangerous territory with Nardole and The Doctor.
Who knew that it would take the infamous Gunpowder Plot to bring Game of Thrones and The Leftovers together? That’s the report on Kit Harington’s now-greenlit Gunpowder miniseries, as Liv Tyler and Sherlock star Mark Gatiss join the former Lord Commander in key roles.
Doctor Who isn’t even beginning the search for Peter Capaldi’s replacement until sometime this summer, but that isn’t stopping overseas betting agencies from attaching major stars to the title role. After some initial oddsmakers’ bets, another agency is placing high odds on not only a female Doctor, but on Tilda Swinton at that.
Well, Kevin Smith’s TV credits had to be leading somewhere, if not a Mallrats or Buckaroo Banzai series. Now, the recent Supergirl director has in mind to develop Spawn creator Todd McFarlane’s Sam and Twitch for a TV adaptation at BBC-America; both directing and writing.
It could be some time before we learn if Benedict Cumberbatch ever gives us another 90 minutes of Sherlock, but Masterpiece and BBC have another way to fill the void. Cumberbatch will star in and executive produce new drama The Child in Time, based on Ian McEwan’s 1987 novel.
We’re generally used to fresh Orphan Black episodes in the spring, but it seems everyone these days is pushing back premieres. So it is, that the fifth and final season of the BBC-A’s clone drama has confirmed a summer return date for “The Final Trip.”
As tends to be the case with Doctor Who announcements, we have quite some time before the departure of star Peter Capaldi takes effect, and a full season in the meantime. Now, reports suggest how and when the search for a 13th Doctor will get underway with showrunner Chris Chibnall, and when to expect Season 11's premiere.
Doctor Who will reach a major turning point over the course of 2017, first saying goodbye to showrunner Steven Moffat in Season 10, and then Peter Capaldi himself in this year’s Christmas special. We won’t know the name of this replacement for some time, but U.K. oddsmakers are already placing strong bets on James Bond star Ben Whishaw, if Season 11 doesn’t opt for a major change.
It was only yesterday we read the writing on the TARDIS to learn that Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi would leave the series behind in 2017, and The BBC is already marking the beginning of the end. Season 10 has an official April premiere date, along with the U.S. debut of young adult spinoff Class.
